Description

A younger and more diverse leadership team will guide the Minnesota Senate as Senator Jeremy Miller, R-Winona, assumes the role of Senate Majority Leader and Senator Melisa López Franzen, DFL-Edina, becomes the Senate Minority Leader. Senator Miller is the first person of Jewish faith to serve as Majority Leader, and Senator López Franzen is the first non-Caucasian member to lead a caucus. Capitol Report Moderator Shannon Loehrke talks with the leaders about their new positions, their goals for the Senate and the future priorities of their respective caucuses.

Also, Governor Tim Walz establishes a new executive council on economic growth, charged with forwarding recommendations to expand Minnesota's economy. Finally, State Capitol historian Brian Pease provides an overview of Minnesota's historic Supreme Court Chamber.
